2. Recommended HDL Coding Styles

This chapter provides Hardware Description Language (HDL) coding style recommendations to ensure optimal synthesis results when targeting Intel FPGA devices.

HDL coding styles have a significant effect on the quality of results for programmable logic designs. Synthesis tools optimize HDL code for both logic utilization and performance; however, synthesis tools cannot interpret the intent of your design. Therefore, the most effective optimizations require conformance to recommended coding styles.

Note: For style recommendations, options, or HDL attributes specific to your synthesis tool (including other Quartus software products and other EDA tools), refer to the synthesis tool vendor’s documentation.
